Chandigarh, Aug 12: The Haryana government has decided to formulate an advance care policy to upgrade and provide better healthcare facilities in civil hospitals of the state and bring them on par with the services offered by units in the private sector.

The government seeks to provide best possible advanced facilities to patients and gear up the machinery for meeting any emergency-like situation, state health Minister Rao Narender Singh said at a review meeting of district medical officers here on Tuesday.

The Director General OF Health Services and civil surgeons should visit OPDs regularly and examine the patients to encourage junior medical officers, Singh said.

The issue of shortage of doctors would be addressed through better management, he said.

Singh said 111 new vehicles had been purchased by the Health Department to beef up medical infrastructure and these would be provided to the Community Health Centres and Primary Health Centres.

Emphasising the need for providing factual data of Mother Mortality Rate (MMR), Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) and Total Fertility Rate, he directed officers to prepare factual data without hiding any case to help reduce MMR and IMR in the state.
